"Irene Ekelund back seriously"
"Irene Ekelund is back in earnest this season."
"At the Tramway anniversary competition, got her straight out of the längdgropen and ran 60 metres at 7,40 – two hundredths during the kvalgränsen to inside CHAMPIONSHIP for the second time in the winter."
"– So this is great, it has not felt in four to five years, " she says."
"It is obvious that the joy begins to come back in the previous ungdomsstjärnans life, which has been a single long skadekavalkad the last few years."
"Värmlandstjejen who ran home the gold in the youth world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Donetsk in the 200 metres in 2013 at the time 22,92 already as a 16-year-old. Then considered her to be one of the world's largest sprinttalanger."
"But it is still her personal record on the specialdistansen outside after an injury period that has cost plenty, both mentally and physically."
"– But now the goal is to get down to those times again. It feels like it is possible if I get the endurance and can train on."
"You seem to thrive with the competition again?"
"– Yes, I am in better shape than I have been on long. The body feels good and now I just hope that it continues like this."
"Irene Ekelund has not 60 metres as no special branch."
" No, it is just too short for me."
"and Yet she ran in the kvalgränsen to inside CHAMPIONSHIP for the second time this season."
"And she can run even faster."
"Now she came directly from the längdgropen and won 7,40, simply superior in a heat without proper resistance in the förtävlingarna."
"In längdtävlingen it became more modest 5,80, but just three centimetres off her personal record."
"But there is no längdsatsning on time."
" No, but it is nice to think about something else and I think it helped me a lot in the run also. There will be more längdtävlingar, but the focus is on the 200 metres. It is my branch."
